Sometimes I think that the reason for cats having tails is that kittens need something to hunt

Undrar varför det heter “gatufoto”? Borde det inte heta “folkfoto”?

NOT my favorite way to spend my days

I see so many that are so happy with using film cameras, I’m happy for them but I can’t see myself ever going back to film. I much happier with digital cameras.

I’m currently browsing the photos by Sune Jonsson in the book “Livstycken” (Engllish Life and work”).

He documented the everyday life of people in northern Sweden. I love these photos, they remind me so much of what I’ve seen myself - some of the photos were taken before I was born, others while I was a toddler, but they are quite close to what I could see myself as a very young kid.

The people and surroundings are so very, very close to how it looked like when we visited older relatives. (I was born slightly south-west of where he was born).

Kittens make those who practice parkour look like … silly, gigantic, flesh blobs trying to imitate kittens

I’m not going to claim that I have an infinite amount of power cables, Ethernet cables, USB cables, etc, but … I don’t fear their immediate extinction 😝

För den som har nåt intresse av Umeå så kan namnkartan vara kul att kolla på

Hmmm, if I’m asked to sign a copyright agreement (online) by entering my name and the system doesn’t accept any letters except a-z, have I then agreed to anything since I’m forced to use “Mostrom” which isn’t my name.

I forgot to upload this yesterday … 1248 days. Yeah, I know, I’m a nerd. Now I’ll keep my mouth shut a couple of years.

I printed these a few years ago … I wonder if I should do something with them or just “archive” them

Mistakes were made on Wednesday … apparently it’s not a good idea to buy 226 cm tall bookshelves to be put in a room where the ceiling is at 224 cm … especially since the intention was to buy the 176 cm version 😝 And I didn’t notice while painting 🤣 Where is the saw?

Life as a cat owner: the kittens has been sleeping in my lap for 1.5h, can’t move until they wake up

Early morning walk before starting to work.

I know that this is common in other parts of the world … but today is one of the very few days each year when it’s cooler inside (no AC) than outside

1234 days straight … it has to be worth something, I’ll probably get an ice cream later today to celebrate, or I should perhaps wait two weeks before the next big celebration: 1248 days.

This all started a few years back when my wife had 30+ days straight and I wanted to see if I could beat her. And it seem like I succeeded (my wife is currently at 555 days).

And yes, I know it silly with this kind of gamification but … it have forced me to exercise more which is all that matters.

Downloaded what looked like an interesting app, launched it and … non-standard UI, first suspicion was “Elektron-app” and yes. Instadelete.

My experiences from my first online conference (#iticse2020)

Sigh, another program that translates “civil engineer” to Swedish as “civilingenjörer” (correct translation would be something closer to “byggnadsingenjör”, “civilingenjör” is closer to “master of science”)

My first online conference … impressions? Well, some things are better but the snacks between sessions is definitely worse (probably a good thing, I don’t need to put on any extra kilos!!)

one thing I’m really starting to dislike with online meetings is that I’ve seen more of peoples nose hair than I like. Laptop webcams is destroying our perception of people 🤣

Conferences and photography

My wish for WWDC? Smart albums in Photos on iOS/iPadOS - that’s all

It’s interesting to watch the live press conference where they present who murdered Olof Palme, they are surprisingly thorough.

(and yes, I remember where I was when the murder happened - at the student union pub, I’m pretty sure I was working and not visiting)
